Yes, yes... that was quite the wit-reply...

But specifically...

example: the 1941 superman cartoons are Public Domain... BUT the character is not... therefor you can't create anything new on Superman...

Now... Holmes videos listed here are in the public domain... BUT is the character in the public domain? Can one create new content with Holmes?
